getting a look at the mountain of loot two women are accused of stealing from bay area homes. this is what officers say they found in the women's car. lots of handbags, jewelry and electronics. police believe the women burglarized 15 homes since june in santa clara, san mateo and contra costa county. >> to be honest, it was a little surprising to see the magnitude -- first of all, the magnitude of the items found, not only the magnitude but just the distance traveled to execute these burglaries. >> police have returned some of the items but they're still looking for others. more money lost on wall street today as the dow lost another 120 points to close at its lowest level since july. what has traders worried enough to go on a two-day selling binge? >> the so-called fiscal cliff. >> the so-called fiscal cliff.

11:09 pm
taxes. and more than $1,000 because the bush-era income tax cuts are set to expire, meaning an extra $3,000 out of her paycheck next year. today, vice president biden predicted the two sides will come up with a solution. >> we're not going over the cliff. we're determined not to go over the cliff. >> reporter: it's not just the bush-era tax cuts. going over the cliff would also trigger massive federal spending cuts. that combination could push us back into another recession. the president will talk about all this when he makes his first official post-election comments tomorrow. elizabeth cook, cbs 5. he has been criticized for being too cool, too detached. and some of you say aloof. but when president obama personally thank the men and women who help get him elected and reelected, he teared up. >> what you guys have done...

i'm really proud of that. i'm really proud of all of you. and... and when you... [├▒applause├▒] >> that was the president thanking his campaign staff in chicago yesterday before heading back to washington. they're plastic guns that fire real bullets. how 3-d printers can make homemade weapons that are completely legal. and what parents can do to keep their kids from developing a peanut allergy. >> 30, 35 minutes away, but today we were about an hour and a half. >> shopping event of the year and it was total madness. the chain reaction on a bay area freeway.

bullets. [ sound of gunshots ] >> reporter: they come in all shapes and sizes. and now there's a whole new way that a piece can be produced. >> it's a project that developed an idea. >> reporter: the brain child of a university of texas law student has become a reality, thanks to something called a 3- d printer. the machine actually looks like a photocopier and usually generates models like these. but the group is looking to make a real gun. here's how it works. the design of the gun is programmed into a 3-d printer. the printer then shapes a piece of hard plastic into a fireable weapon. the process takes hours. the group is collecting designs from contributors around the world. the final schematics will be distributed online. then anyone with a 3-d printer and a computer will be able to print a gun at home. >> we've now crossed the threshold. we're there. we will have the reality of a
11:15 pm
weapon system that can be printed out from your desk. >> reporter: the printers cost anywhere from just a few thousand to 100,000. making a gun in your garage or basement for personal use is well within your rights. >> a law-abiding citizen who decides they want to manufacture a firearm for themselves can do that legally, as long as that gun doesn't meet certain criteria. >> reporter: they add, making a gun at home is nothing new. that doesn't mean they won't be keeping a careful eye on it, as 3-d printers could bring a new dimension to making weapons in the u.s. >> if it becomes a concern for public safety, we will go out with messages to the public on some of the concerns and the do's and don'ts with that. >> reporter: allen martin, cbs 5. as for those texas grad students, the company that had initially leased them the 3-d printer took it back. but we talked to the student, and he is confident that he will have access to a new 3-d

printer soon. it's not your imagination. pollen is getting worse these days. and it turns out, being wealthy might make your child more likely to have a peanut allergy. what is he talking about? a study from the american college of allergy, asthma and immunology finds greater childhood allergy rates among wealthier families. in other words, quote, oversanitation -- again, their words -- might suppress the natural development of your kids' immune system. you oversanitize them. just one factor that bay area researchers have suspected. >> if there's a genetic component, that's something that's inherited from family to family. but in addition, there's something in the environment. >> also in the environment, more pollen, warmer temperatures. we're talking about climate change here. not make-believe. they produce higher pollen counts. researchers say by the year
11:17 pm
2040, those counts could double, meaning twice the suffering. day one, and it was a madhouse at the mall. this was a view from chopper 5 earlier tonight. 580 was backed up all day long around the new paragon outlets in livermore. juliette goodrich talked to people who waited hours to shop. i hope they got some deal, juliette. >> reporter: they did. once they got inside. normally we do live shots in empty parking lots. take a look at this. it's like a concert just got out. shoppers are still leaving the outlet after 11:00 tonight. a headache getting in. but they say once they were inside, they had that shoppers' high. it was a party at paragon. music, wine, and a festive and jam-packed opening night at the high-end shopping outlet. >> we don't have to go to vacaville anymore. i think it's fabulous. there's so many different stores here. >> reporter: but getting here, a differented a venture, unless you rode your bike. >> i got out of work a half
11:18 pm
